    Biden's first 100 days, guest Quincy Troupe

    Biden's first 100 days and all the media focuses on whether he will run again in 2024? CEOs of Facebook, Twitter, and Google faced Congress to answer for their role, if any, in the January 6 riots on The Capitol. Is this a move towards Congress governing Social Media? And there's still China...can the Biden Administration get the Chinese government to stop human rights violations? Also, an exclusive interview with Quincy Troupe, award-winning Poet, Journalist and Professor Emeritus.

    Asian hate, voter suppression

    American hate against Asians is nothing new. President Arthur signed the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 excluding an entire nationality lasting until 1943; Legislatures in 43 states have proposed no less than 250 bills that would restrict ballot access that will make voting more difficult for tens of millions of Americans. All this and more with Part III of my interview with Chuck D.
